The key words that best describe Lava are— Fire and Transformation. It has the energy of The Phoenix. It was once pure fire in the form of liquid matter, which when cooled, formed into solid rock. Like meteorites, it has undergone a powerful transformation and carries within it’s vibrational experience the energy to help us in our own transformations. Lava was traditionally used by Native Americans when entering battle for strength and clarity.
It is a powerful tool for anyone who needs more fire in their lives, and helps us bring about swift change, transformation, and the fulfillment of our dreams. The energy of lava is powerful, direct, passionate, and focused. At the same time it is a balanced and solid energy which stabilizes us, and helps dissipate anger. In addition to embodying the element of Fire, lava embodies the elemental qualities of Earth—that which it has become. It is a grounding stone that strengthens our connection to Mother Earth, supporting and anchoring us in times of great change.
A mala has 108 beads, which is the sacred number for Hindu and Buddhist rosaries—known in these traditions as Malas.
It is especially beneficial in supporting Muladhara (base, or root) chakra.
